I need something happy to write about.

Short version: What are some things (thoughts, ideas, activities, emotions, etc) i could write an up-beat song about. No love songs! Detailed reasoning in spoilers. [spoiler]I've been arranging my songs into a sort of 'album' order just to see how they can all fit together and play off each other, and i'm considering actually producing and posting it soon. But i ran into an issue. I'm not exactly sure how to phrase the issue, but i need a new song in the mix to liven things up a bit. A lot of them are sort of contemplative, and one is intended to be a sad song of sorts. Overall they're starting to get a pretty mellow feel, which i really like, but over the first three songs (the third being the sad song) i get the feeling it drags on a bit. The fourth one is a really energetic lively one, and from there it keeps a ver nice feel. I don't want to mess with the order they've got, and even if i tried it wouldn't really solve the issue. Basically i need to write another up-beat song to fill the space before the third song so the album isn't so lopsided.[/spoiler] Now the tricky part: i've already written about all the things that jump to mind when i think happy thoughts. I've got songs about the people i care about, songs about music, and a song about my favorite season. When i think of other things that could potentially start a song on, they turn out really similar to the ones i've already got. I need some inspiration!

  • Think of something you munched on that you though was quite tasty. Or think of a nice song you found rather catchy. Perhaps you should dwell on a scent that's not smelly. Writing of simple pleasures in life? Don't think it hasty.

  • How about...a song about beauty. Not about any specific thing or person, but just about the things you find beautiful in life, and in the world overall. Sorry if it's not the best idea, just got a lot of other things on my mind at the moment.

  • For every terrorist bomber, there's a hundred people that rush out to help the injured. Make a song about that. Something about the good guys overwhelming the bad guys.

  • You could always go the dark and upbeat route like Pumped Up Kicks. I don't know what style you are making music in, but since you are good at the deeper, thoughtful stuff that may be the way to go.
